In order to make their trailers meet the specific requirements of the customers, Nooteboom presented the modernized OSD semi low-loader. The machinery fully corresponds to the needs of professional road transport operator. The vehicles are created in the framework of the OSD PRO-program and can be applied for various purposes.
The key feature of the semi low-loaders of such type is their load floor height. It is very low and is available in two variations. The first group has standard loaded load floor height of approximately 88 cm in a drive position. It is created for the vehicles with the 10 tonnes per axle or 12 tonnes per axle. The second group has a load floor of 78 cm, which is considered very low. It is appropriate for the 8 tonnes/axle vehicles. The possible speed for both variations totals 80 km per hour.
It is noticeable that the options can be selected depending on the purposes and requirements of the customers. Besides, the whole semi low-loader can be assembled according to the customer’s needs.
